Autism Spectrum Disorder Assessment
ADOS-2: The Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule-Second Edition is an activity-based assessment administered by trained clinicians to evaluate communication skills, social interaction, and imaginative use of materials in individuals who are suspected to have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The ADOS-2 was developed to provide an opportunity to observe symptoms and behaviours associated with ASD in a consistent manner across different clients, clinicians, and locations. The ADOS-2 is currently considered the “gold standard” in the assessment of ASD.
ADI-R: The Autism Diagnostic Interview-Revised is a structured interview used for diagnosing autism, planning treatment, and distinguishing autism from other developmental disorders. Used in research for decades, this comprehensive interview provides a thorough assessment of individuals suspected of having autism or other autism spectrum disorders. The ADI-R has proven highly useful for formal diagnosis as well as treatment and educational planning.
WISC-V: The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children – Fifth Edition is an individually administered and comprehensive clinical instrument used to assess the general thinking and reasoning skills of children aged six to sixteen years. Test results include a Full-Scale Intelligence Quotient (IQ) score, as well as age-equivalent rankings and scores for verbal comprehension, visual spatial, fluid reasoning, working memory and processing speed composites.
